Unfortunately, I was only able to get the one photo of it. I didn't have a chance to charge my camera after going to the zoo this past weekend and the battery died as I was taking the photo. Fortunately, it turned out OK.

We're about 20 minutes away from Horicon Marsh, which is the largest marsh in the United States (I think it's around 32,000 acres in size). It attracts a lot of birds this time of year and we end up with quite a few of them stopping in our backyard throughout the summer.
